Individuals with difficult to treat seizure disorders have an opportunity at Albany Med to participate in the discovery of new treatments. This research allows the physicians of the Neurosciences Institute to become familiar with promising medications before they become available to the general public. For instance, patients were able to participate in Drs. Anthony Ritaccio and Gerwin Schalk research, when they successfully developed and demonstrated a new brain mapping procedure that could more precisely define critical areas of the brain for neurosurgical procedures.
